See all the Images for this Car
This superbly presented and competitive Lotus Cortina is available ready and prepared for the 2005 season having been converted into a correct FIA, Appendix K car between 1987-89.
This was owned at that time by a Mr David Ramsbotham, and was campaigned by him in the German Historic Touring Car Championship.
Enjoying many races across Europe for a few years, the car was then bought by Mr Roger Bennington ( Stratton motor company) and was rebuilt during the winter of 2001/2002.
Having been demonstrated but not raced the car was driven by none other than Mr Jack Sears as the pace car for the TOCA Heritage GT rounds. The Cortina then was to be campaigned under new ownership by Mr Martin Angle (a proven winner in Aston Martin Circles), along with his two sons Hugh and Barnaby, who are both stars of the future!
The car was prepared by Jim Morgan (Ex Allan Mann, lead mechanic) who still prepares Allans own collection.
The car has been a front running car with numerous class wins in TOP HAT, HSCC pre 65 Touring car events, and AMOC roadsports.
Also this superb car was latterly shared and raced by non other than Ex F1 supremo and period works Lotus Cortina driver Mr Jackie Oliver.
While under recent Legends development and working closely to find any minor improvements for Jackie, the car has again been proven to be a pace setting car, culminating in front running qualifying and race pace.
The car has recently received a fresh engine rebuild by Connaught Engine Services and has minimal time on the engine!
A very important and competative car, which is ready to enjoy.....
